It was our 4th cruise on MSC Divina in a row. My experience is still outstanding. Embarkation was a little bit slow, but the ship was full. The food is excellent, but a little bit difficult for American passengers, because on an ... Read more

This was my 55th cruise and my husband's 51st cruise. We have sailed on all the major lines multiple times, and on some lines that no longer exist. For the past 15 years we have pretty much only sailed in suites. We chose this cruise ... Read more

If I said I was disappointed I would not be telling the truth. This holiday was a joke from the booking onward. Misinformation from jump is correct, wrong details about flight timings and dates, further deliberate errors about airlines ... Read more

We have just returned from a cruise on MSC Favorita in Yacht Club. If you want to cruise in peace and quiet with some trappings of style, the Yacht Club may be for you. If you want to socialise or are English speaking and want a ... Read more

I had an excellent holiday aboard the MSC Opera. The service was first class. All staff were friendly and attentive. Cleanliness was good. I greatly enjoyed the food in the restaurant and in the buffet. The pasta and the cakes were ... Read more

After the many less than flattering reviews of MSC cruise, we were a bit apprehensive about our 7 day Splendida cruise. We traveled with another couple, and vacation plans required a Barcelona departure and return on a specific date. Given ... Read more

We (a party of 14 odd middleagers) booked our 3 nt cruise to Portuguese Island 6 months previously to take advantage of what they call the Prima Special which means you get a 30% discount on the total price - well worth it if you can ... Read more

What a disappointment. I had been looking forward to this cruise for over 10 months and I cannot tell you how many times I visited the MSC USA web site to view all of the amenities of their Yacht Club. It's mostly all lies. ... Read more

The MSC Opera - a beautiful, well appointed and maintained ship! The service staff was superb - both attentive and friendly. Each port-of-call and tour was outstanding - great sights and tours that were not overly rushed while being ... Read more

For a frame of reference, we took our very first cruise 10 years ago on the formerly named Seven Sea Navigator on a Western Med. Cruise and we were overwhelmed with the entire experience. We very much enjoyed that ship, the ports, and the ... Read more

This cruise isn't for everyone - just those who like to have fun. The food was good, sometime great - never cold or tasteless. Yes, I ran into a couple of staff members that were a little snootie - but no one that mattered. The dining room ... Read more

We are just back from a 17 day Transatlantic on Poesia. Whatever MSC's policies may be when cruising in European waters, American usages prevailed on this crossing. Dinner was early, the sittings were at 6:15 and 8:30. As much ice water as ... Read more
